Update to you all from our Serenity:
I talked to Karen this morning, and she had me in stitches right from the get-go. I called her phone, and after 6 rings no one answered, so I called her cell phone. I said, "Karen, your phone was ringing and ringing why didn't you answer it? Didn't you hear it?" She said, "Nope, the pole is gone that the phone line used to hang on silly!" Well we laughed ourselves silly over that sick humor. This was good as it changed some tears to something lighter.
She said she misses everyone desperately, and is staring at her monitor, as she has no hard-drive, and wondering when she can get power to get back on line. They can't find their insurance adjuster even to get things dealt with, but are still trying.
Apparently all the recipients of N.O. love those MRE's (Meals ready to eat.) She said, she adds water, and this little heating pack and presto - dinner is served! I think I will just take her word for that.
She hopes to go to her sister's house soon to get online and say hello to everyone, as she still has no power, water, etc. She is just still busy in the darn heat cleaning and getting things back in some livable condition. She was working on her room today she said, and the power meter was being installed today, so that is a good sign, as they can't want for power. A cool spell is expected there which they are praying will stay that way, as there is still word of another storm. Sheesh!
So, that is the latest from Serenity, until she checks in. Again, I was supposed to make sure you all know she really, really misses you and can't wait to get back.
